Cairo Selected to Host 33rd International Public Meeting
16 May 2008
*MARINA DEL REY, Calif.*: Cairo, Egypt will host the Internet Corporation
for Assigned Names and Numbers' 33rd International Public Meeting from 2-7
At its 28 April 2008 meeting, the ICANN Board accepted the proposal to host
the meeting put forward by National Telecom Regulatory Authority of Egypt.
"This is going to be an exciting meeting for ICANN with it marking our 10th
anniversary and it's fitting that it is in Egypt," said Paul Levins, ICANN's
Executive Officer and Vice President - Corporate Affairs. "Egypt, with other
nations and the technical community, has played a key role in moving
Internationalized Domain Names forward."
The meeting venue will be the Intercontinental – Cairo Citystars. The
website with information on the ICANN hotel room rate and booking
instructions will be posted soon.
Each year ICANN holds three meetings in different regions around the world.
These meetings constitute an essential part of ICANN's global
consensus-building and outreach efforts. The ICANN Meetings Committee sets
the regions in which ICANN will hold its meetings. Proposals are then
solicited from organizations interested in hosting the ICANN Meeting.
*About ICANN: *

these resources is vital to the Internet's operation, so ICANN's global
stakeholders meet regularly to develop policies that ensure the Internet's
